First time in Scotland

We are planning a trip next Spring, and would like to know the 'must-sees' in Scotland. We will be in Edinburgh for a couple of days, and already know what to see there. We especially love the countryside, historical sights, castles, scenery. We don't hike or bike, but will probably rent a car. We will be there two weeks, possibly three.

What castles would you choose, if you could see just three? And which historic sights are tops? Do you have a favourite home/garden to explore?

Also, does anyone have a suggestion for a B & B where we could stay for several days, not expensive, and in a central location?

Thanks for your help.

Hi- Have a look at www.undiscoveredscotland.com and consider a book "DK Eyewitness Guides to Scotland" or "Knopf's Guides to Scotland-they both have maximum photos so you can easily decide if a venue is something you may be interested in. They both have accomodation and restaurants, and one of the books even has a more selective smaller book called "Top10 in Scotland", smaller and easy to carry. Enjoy- Sandy
